Well worth a visit

We were lucky enough to be visiting this restaurant when it offers a Paella with their usual tapas plate. All wonderful but I would suggest that you ask them not to bring everything too quickly, I think we would have enjoyed a little extra time to savour the different plates. The excellent food and... read more

The most delicious tapas with plenty of choice. Staff friendly and helpful, good drinks list. Apparently good pizzas as well.

We shared a "Chef's Platter" of well cooked and varied meats and washed this down with a glass of excellent red wine included in the reasonable price for this quality of food and wine. service was very good.

Loved the decor and atmosphere. Only had a couple of drinks, but the bar staff were helpful and friendly. Would love to return for dinner.

This is a great venue, We didn't eat there - but tried quite a selection of beers. Funky, warm and laid back. The music was great, (not mainstream) I think that if we stilled lived in Adelaide - we would visit often.

Group of 9 (all from interstate). No booking. We had a Vegan and one Gluten Free. Well, a table was arranged for us, and we let the restaurant suggest the menu. Was great. 2 children in the group of 9 and everyone was happy. Food was wonderful. Service too. Can highly recommend Casablabla :)

We stopped by here on a night out with some friends. This place serves tapas-style food. Cocktails were good and we couldn't get enough of them. But the food was not bad, but we've had better tapas elsewhere. Ambience was very pleasant though. We saw outside and it had a really laid-back, chilled vibe. Really good for catching up with...

Recommended by someone for good tapas and drinks. We ordered the chefs choice for 2 and were really pleased with the choice. Plentiful good quality freshly cooked food which was well presented by friendly efficient staff. Give it a try, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

There is not a lot to complain about at Casablabla. Food is pretty good, service ok, but I always feel like they could just do a bit better, when instead I feel like I'd love to love it. Maybe it's me. We had the chefs choice, it was good food, we'd asked for a weighting towards less meat, more veg,... More

This was a visit to Adelaide after many many years and to visit my old haunts was a treat - so much had changed. In particular Leigh street. This restaurant had me at first look. What an exiting, exotic vibe and the perfect place to kick back with a drink and tappas. The staff were friendlily and helpful and the... More
